Announcement of De-Support of using RAW devices in Release 12G
Oracle Server - Enterprise Edition - Version: 12.0 to 12.0
Information in this document applies to any platform.
Oracle Database Server 12g (Not yet released)
What is being announced?
De-Support of Raw
This document is to announce the de-support of raw devices in a future Oracle 12 g release. This means customers can no longer keep their datafiles, OCR or Voting disks on raw devices in Oracle 12g.
In the past, clustered databases required raw devices. However raw devices were cumbersome to manage and are no longer required. With current releases of Oracle, customer running a clustered database (RAC) can choose between ASM, OCFS, NFS, or other cluster file systems. Oracle 12g will have the ability to store the voting disk and OCR on ASM.
What do you need to do?
If raw devices are not being used in the current release then there is nothing to be done. However if raw devices are being currently used, then planning should be done to migrate off the raw devices. There are many choices currently to replace raw devices, including ASM, OCFS, and other cluster file systems.
